Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan

In 2019, the City of New Braunfels Solid Waste and Recycling Division completed a 20-year visioning plan that considers current programs and services while looking to meet future needs.  SCS Engineers was selected to assist the City in creating a guiding document that would outline the most applicable and fiscally responsible solid waste management strategies for our community.  In addition, the Plan

  • Identified goals and objectives,
  • Established a baseline (FY 2016-2017),
  • Forecasted waste streams,
  • Evaluated options to increase landfill diversion and manage future waste streams,
  • Assessed financial requirements, and
  • Prepared an implementation plan.

The proposed action items are categorized into short term (1-5 years), medium term (6-10 years) and long term (10-20) years.

The Plan was approved by City Council on July 8, 2019.
